" reported benjamin netanyahu and mitt romney enjoyed a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action. >> we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> will this story have a happy ending? >> this story will not have a happy ending. what we saw this week was barack obama at his best, connecting with an audience, and he made a compelling case for the need for a two-state solution, the security of israel and the well- being of the region. >> charles? >> the emphasis has been on personality. what happened is obama changed his positions on the settlement and the peace process. he realized he made a terrible mistake in the first term. he insisted on a settlement freeze as a preconditio. it wrecked peace negotiations and stopped everything. he changed, went back and said in a startling statement that if you g
, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornerstone of the campaign strategy. barack obama did get reelected and made a case that the two- state solution was imperative for israel's values, that we do not have people that will be stopped at every checkpoint and cannot move freely in their homeland. making an appeal to jewish values and traditions. i thought it was great. >> it is pushing on an open door. the israelis have offered peace. they offered peace in 1967, at camp david in 2000 and in 2008. the point is not the settlemen s , and that is the reason it is important what obama said. he essentially said it is not the settlements, but that the palestinians have never accepted a jewish state, and until they accept a jewish state and are willing to sign an agreement that ends the conflict, you will never have a settlement. that is why it is third the agenda. iran is one, syria is two, and peace is way down there at number three. >> i do not disagree with you. it is the presen
out. >> oh-oh. oh-oh. >> here is one. november the 5th, 2012. >> okay. >> "why romney will win." >> you can say i have been wrong a few times. you know, there were a lot of polls. i have always placed great stock in gallop. and the gallop got this election wrong as did some other pollsters. the bam ground poll, and showed romney winning and -- >> why in this business, stick their neck out on predictions? i mean so many are wrong. >> i don't know. why did i do that? i didn't have to do that. >> it was right at election. >> yeah, i know. i know. in other words, i was, i was wrong, i was proven wrong the next day, i think. when november 6th the election, i don't know. i look back and i think, gee, you know? why didn't you, you know, i had certain qualms, but i thought romney was going to win. romney thought he was going to win. romney's pollsters thought he was going to win. look, there was evidence out there. look, it was minority for sure. i mean, so many of the other poll, the big newspaper polls, and others had obama winning re-election, but you know why not? i thought, i thou
. mr. carlson, mitt romney could live anywhere he wants -- except the white house -- and so he chose to sell his mansion in utah and buy a mansion in liberal la jolla, california. why did he decide to settle in california? >> mitt romney -- the name rings a bell -- as someone who is from la jolla, i would say he inexplicable, to be honest with you. i would have been happier had mitt romney moved to highland park, texas, for example. there you go. or louisiana. i will say if you are interested in drinking complicated coffee and going surfing, la jolla is fantastic. >> he does not drink coffee. >> that is right. >> just froth. >> i ask you this question last year. i will ask it again because you are qualified, of all the in this room, you know more about this than any. you are personally close to the clintons. do you believe that she will run for president in the next cycle, and do you think she should? >> do i think she should? absolutely. i work backwards and say, will she be a good president? the answer is no, she would be a great president. it is interesting now that we have moved
carolina and rick perry in texas and ideally maybe even governor romney in massachusetts. they deal across the aisle and they deal with prak cal issues and they can help the party sort of see where the country's going and move ahead in a practical matter and take credit for it if the party is smart enough to take advantage of that. >> practicality, bipartisan thinking and nonideological thinking is the reason why people liked republican governors so easily. they don't like to make a big ideological choice and giving a reasonable bipartisan, non-ideological answer. i haven't thought much about it and it sounds fine to me. it's a reasonable answer as a gi that doesn't give much thought to something and even if you're a governor. here's another example, on monday morning at a press conference to review the rnc's 2012 autopsy, the chairman of the party reince priebus had kind words for senator rob portman who came out in favor of gay marriage. let's listen. >> how do you rein in the anti-gay and anti-women sentiments and bring these voters into the fold and who in the political arena do you th
a massive ticket to topple mitt romney. what happened? big surprise. they couldn't agree on who was going to be president and who was going to be vice president. tonight, a great story of political mating and eventually cold feet. >>> plus, it's hard for michele bachmann to top herself but she's done it not once but twice this week, including that obama care, love this word, is killing people. remember the death squads and death panels. she's back with them again. michele bachmann pants on fire fact check coming later in the show. let me talk about the fringe right to know even a smidgen of history. this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ bop ] [ bop ] [ bop ] yan all you want, i don't like v8 juice. [ male announcer ] how about v8 v-fusion. a full serving of vegetables, a full serving of fruit. but what you taste is the fruit. so even you... could've had a v8. has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >>> next week the supreme court
, 2012.and >> okay. >> "why romney will win." >> you can say i have been wrong in a a few times. you know, there were a lot of polls. i have always placed great stock in gallop. and the gallop got this election wrong as did some other pollsters.a >> why in this business, sticka their neck out on predictions? i mean so many are wrong.and is >> i don't know. why did i do that? i didn't have to do that. in other words, i was, i was wrong, i was proven wrong the next day, i think. >> october 8th, you said this in your twitter message. "the media pull out all the stops to reelect the president." did you really believe that? >> let me -- maybe they did not pull al the stops but certainly pulled out some of them. i like the way they covered the campaign. normally would you take a presidential campaign within the president is running for re-election, his word would be a big issue. they completely ignored it. the record. it was all about what he was doing in the campaign. romney, of course, wanted to make obama's record a part of the campaign and he was highly critical of it. the press didn't pay
. stunning words there. acknowledging the drubing president obama's campaign gave the romney campaign in the area of technology. the report calls for a wide ranging digital briefing. recommending priebus hire a digital and technology officer by april. even opening an rnc field office in san francisco. the report calls for big changes to the primary system for the presidential season. noting that the 20 presidential primary debates in 2012 were damaging to mitt romney. calls for prohibiting primary debates before september 1st, 2015. limiting the number of debates to 10 to 12 and possibly docking delegates from candidates who ignore the rules so that there are not, like, other debates around there. it also calls for moving the national convention up to late june or even july. shortening the primary process. priebus talked about the damage he believes the long primary did to romney yesterday on cbs. >> i think we had way too many debates with our candidates slicing and dicing each other. i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'd do one a month. i'd have more say ov
of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new fr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't changed their policies a bit, chris. you see republican state legislators pushing antiabortion bills that are clearly unconstitutional, clearly punitive to women. no exceptions for incept and rape. things t
romney became the fifth of the last six republican presidential nominees to fail to win the popular vote. last week he told a meeting of party conservatives that he fell short. >> as someone who just lost the last election i'm probably not in the best position to chart the course for the next one. >> ifill: romney's defeat has inspired much republican soul searching. today party chairman reince priebus unveiled his solution. >> we want to build our party. we want to do it with bold strokes to show we're up to the challenge and we're done with business as usual. >> ifill: the 98-page report detailed the party's failures in 2012. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> ifill: called the growth and opportunity project or g.o.p., the report is unsparingly self-critical, conceding among other things that the party is increasingly seen as the province
an assault weapon bans. >> i'm with you. red state democrats up for reelection, states carried by romney, but they have to win it in 2014, they face pressure from both the right and to some extent programs as much but not necessarily from the level. the head of the change campaign committee said it will hurt democrats. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, bu
and netanyahu who has publicly supported mitt romney. there is no better way of saying welcome to our country than i voted for the other guy. but the jerusalem post today reported that president obama was staying 50 hours and not two days, 50 hours. when was the last time we had to go back and question the relationship between the two leaders of the country like we are now? >> that's a good point. shouldn't they have used the theme from "boosom buddies"? or perhaps "the a team." or "portrait of eddie's father." >> how about "mission impossible." >> that would be morrell vent. >> or "i want to sex you up" by color me bad. it was a staple of early 90s pop songs and it reflects the relationship perfectly. go, remi. >> i didn't believe this was real. when i click owed the link -- clicked on the link, i thought it was one of the crew members that put this together or a jibjab type of thing. it is so poorly done. you don't have to be an expert in political strategy or history or public relations to realize somebody threw it together. >> they brought the presidential limo seen over there and put die
where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a lot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
going to happen? do you see seiu endorsing mitt romney? >> not mitt romney. he's history. but the fact of the matter is, if the republican party wants to broaden itself out, going forward, they will choose canned -- candidates and issues that attract labor -- >> we have the very best! we have the very best issues about labor, we want to lower the taxes on working people and more liberty for working people. we want to protect america's borders and from terrorism for working people -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. >> we are not talking about the borders. you are conflating a burch of stuff that has nothing to do with unions itch the idea that working people is union membership is a fraud. working people need job creation. and conservative approximatelies will bring t. liberal policies will crush it -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that's proven to be untrue. >> shannon: gentlemen. we talked about the numbers. neap 1953, it is peak for union membership here. 26% of the labor force. now it's 11.3. if the unions are vital and so powerful, why t
have commodity, you put the poll up and think back to november 6, obama against romney in florida and romney a terrible candidate, and he got, he lost by less than two points in florida. here she is, winning by 11 points over jeb bush, much more popular in florida than romney has ever been so that tells us it is very much pro hillary clinton and antirepublican and a little antibush but the republicans, the brand, we use the guy's name in the first section, the executive director of the pew poll which is a respected poll, said that the g.o.p. brand is on the verge of being marginalized. if that happens, how do you recover? i don't know. >> if that happens and they cannot do this we will get another party in the country because the democrats are unpopular too. there is a 70's percent, we all talked about this, antiwashington, antipolitical party. someone will fill the void. if the republicans don't do it someone will. >> hillary clinton has to stay as far outside the mainstream of washington, dc, infighting, as possible so resign when slow did was a well timed act, and pat is right:
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statements that he made. as i say it, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it. that's cowardly. >>alisyn: harry reid did not say it was because of the sequester. what he did on the floor was he linked the two. he didn't say it was because of the sequester that this terrible tragedy happened. he was talking about the tragedy and then he just segued in his own head and verbally to talking about the sequester and about how we have to be careful. harry reid does this a lot, by the way. his spokes people are forever apologizing about the clumsiness. >>steve: his people tried to walk it back and they suggested the same thing you have. but when you listen to it where there are these dead marines and the sequester, he clearly has linked it. whether he wanted to or not, he linked it and it's wrong. not only should he apologize to the marines, he sh
hearing from mitt romney about self-departation? >> hey, thomas, it's good to be with you. if you think about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to you
has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this is just part of the landscape. >> as history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were barry goldwater and george mcgovern and both got hammered. so i think you are right. just real quickly on the ted cruze barack obama front. isn't it interesting that both of their stories revolve around, you know, a rags to riches in america the greatest nation on earth but they both see this country so differently? think really do. don't they. look at the line of work that president obama went into. you know, it was a law professor and a community organiz
romney went shopping for some stores in midtown. it's great to be here this evening in the vast magnificent hilton ballroom, or what mitt romney would call a little fixer-upp fixer-upper. >> you got to admit, no matter what side of the line you sit on, those are pretty funny. those are more than just funny lines. my guest wrote an op-ed for cnn.com on obama's "weaponized wit." obama didn't invent the political jab, but the president has taken the art form to a whole other level to take on rivals. dean's live for us in new york. dean, what is it? why do you think obama's become such a good
, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h
's not conservative. it didn't get its base out in the 2012 election. >> rush is putting the blame on mitt romney who suddenly became a severe conservative after being a moderate republican. let's look at true conservatives in the running for president in 2012. rick santorum, newt gingrich and rick perry. all three made an appearance at cpac. the influential conservative gathering, we believe these are true conservatives. would any of those true conservatives really have beaten barack obama? amy? >> carol, i don't think anybody would beat barack obama. he's a pop culture icon, and he's captain to that generation that all they care about is pop culture. when rush is talking about people being conservative, he's not talking about social issues i don't think. he's talking about somebody fiscally conservative. i come from a red state and i didn't think mitt romney's conservative enough for me, he is for his state. it's all relative. that's what he's talking about. >> maria. >> agree with amy. i don't think that any of the other candidates would have beaten president obama. now, i do agree with rush that
-huh. >> the brothers plan to have the transplant at oakland's children's hospital in mid- april. >>> mitt romney is set to host a retreat in utah this summer. according to reports the former republican presidential candidate has sent out e-mail invitations to a number of politicians, business leaders, and donors. the cost of attending the sefntdz 5,000. the retreat is sponsored by romney's son's investment firm. it is said to give business executives and politicians a chance to network with each other. >>> bo obama is a wanted dog. let me show you some video posted on youtube. this is from the oregon humane society. in it, one of their dogs, a golden doodle named ramona asked bo to be her date to the society's annual doggy dash fund-raiser. it is being held in may. the humane society is also asking bo to serve as grand marshal for that event. so far no word back from bo or the white house. >>> this afternoon san francisco zoo's newest tiger cub is making her first public appearance. she has yet to be named. she is daughter to leanne and larry. today and tomorrow she is going to be on display in the zoo
, that mitt romney's comments about the 47%. this report says the very same thing t at the time, we talked about how the romney campaign didn't have troops on the ground didn't have any really good database. this report says the same thing. the key is and tell me your take on this. 866-55-press. will the party change? will it recognize what went wrong? and will it change? i don't think so. let me give you three quick examples. the report says would havee have to increase our outreach to mine or at this. the day after the the report president obama nominates tom perez for labor secretary and rush limbaugh and says this is as bad as hugo chavez and another because he supports immigration reform. another example, the report says, again, we have to reach out to more young voters. the day after the report came out, reinye brebius said the party is one man and one woman. we are against same-sex marriage. 81% of young people support marriage equality. >> if there is any issue that it shows the generational gap, it's marriage equality. >> bill: another one, the repo
with the palestinians and broker an apology over a commando raid. he didn't win the presidency but mitt romney plans to have a say. he's asking political and business leaders to a four-day retreat in utah in june. the idea, look for solutions to the country's problems. romney says he wants to stay engaged in public policy. among those invited are new jersey governor chris christie and house budget chairman congressman paul ryan. >>> 149 airport control towers around the nation are set to close because of spending cuts. the faa says it is targeting low to medium traffic airports. closures could also effect big airports causing delays of as much as 90 minutes. i asked a former air marshal and union president representing air traffic controllers if this would affect air safety. >> there's no concerns for the public as far as safety is concerned. i believe with these closures we'll have somewhere between 150,000 flights that take off and land per year. to give you an idea of what the percentage is, there's more than 26,000 flights that take off and land every day. you are talking 150,000 throughout the
